Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program

The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) was enacted to provide compensation and medical benefits to employees who worked at certain Department of Energy (DOE) facilities, including contractors and subcontractors at those locations, and certain of its vendors.

Adjudication of issues pertaining to all claims for benefits under the EEOICPA is the responsibility of the Department of Labor (DOL). The DOL is supported in its role by the DOE, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Department of Justice (DOJ).

The DOE provides worker and facility records and data to the DOL to help in their decision-making and in support of the administration of the EEOICPA. In addition, DOE maintains a list of facilities covered under the EEOICPA. This list is published in the Federal Register and is periodically updated.

In addition to periodic publication of the list in the Federal Register, the DOE also maintains the searchable Covered Facility Database. This database contains additional information pertaining to each of the facilities noted in the Federal Register, including years of activity and a general overview of what the facility did.

Several agencies are involved with this program and links to relevant web sites are provided below.

If you feel you may be an eligible claimant, you may call the Department of Labor (DOL) toll-free hotline at 1-866-888-3322 or visit their website and request claim forms.

DOL will request employment records and workplace exposure history from Boeing.  Claimants are not required to obtain this information directly from Boeing.  However, if retirees or current employee radiation workers would like copies of their radiation exposure histories, they should submit a request to Boeing using the the following form.
